The Red & Black unveiled their home jersey for the upcoming season tonight on the club’s digital channels with the campaign paying homage to the cultural diversity of the Western Sydney region.

The 2022/23 Kappa home jersey continues with signature Red & Black hoops anda slight change in detail with a brushstroke pattern on the kit used as metaphor for the hardworking people of Western Sydney who make this club possible.

Major club partners Voltaren and Intermain also continue their placement on the front of the A-League Men’s Home and Women’s jerseys respectively.

The home jersey launch sees the Wanderers continue their ongoing multicultural and inclusivity campaign with a range of languages spoken and nationalities represented in the launch.

Wanderers member and Western Sydney local ‘Big Skeez’ narrates and performs his Afro Swing track “UP” in the launch, which speaks of the mentality, resilience and attitude of the people in Western Sydney.

Throughout the video, the fabric of the kit is also used as a metaphor for the Wanderers role in the Western Sydney region that goes beyond simply being a football club, rather a sum of all parts of the region – “The fabric of this club, it’s all around us.”

The campaign features a Wanderers All Star line-up with players represented from both men’s and women’s teams including Marcelo, Milos Ninkovic, Romain Amalfitano, Brandon Borrello, Kusini Yengi, Gabriel Cleur, Oliver Bozanic, Adama Traore, Jarrod Carluccio, Tomi Mrcela, Sulejman Krpic, Yeni NgBakoto, Amy Harrison, Clare Hunt, Sheridan Gallagher, Alexia Apostolakis and Ella Abdul Massih.

All facets of the Wanderers community are also represented from members, fans, partners and the club’s community programs which are underpinned by the Wanderers Foundation including Nexus Soccer Solutions Program, Future Wander Women Program, Wanderers School visits, Inclusivity Programs and more. 

Western Sydney Wanderers CEO Scott Hudson said it was great to be able to connect the club with its community to bring this launch to life.

“We are very proud to be launching our 2022/23 Kappa home jerseys showcasing the multiculturalism and diversity of the Western Sydney region. Members, fans and our community are the fabric of this club. To be able to connect with our men’s and women’s players again is something we hope to do more of this season and for many seasons to come,” said Hudson.

“I would like to thank all our partners on the jerseys for their ongoing support as we push towards both the Isuzu UTE A-League Men’s and Liberty A-League Women’s season commencing soon.”

The Red & Black once again worked in collaboration with creative powerhouse Chisel, who over the last five years have worked closely with the club to bring to life the story of Western Sydney with the Wanderers.

Chisel’s Lachlan Macara, who directed the piece, said it was great to work again with the club and the Western Sydney community.

“We’ve worked with the Wanderers long enough now to know they are more than just a football club. This 22/23 Home kit launch gave us an opportunity to showcase their brand new threads but also the fabric of the Western Sydney community that underpins this great club,” said Macara.

“Big thanks to Blacktown’s own Big Skeez for the soundtrack, the Oneway riders and all the local businesses and fans for making this such an enjoyable time for us at Chisel.”
